MSN Messenger Virus Jitux.A

Warninig! Virus Alert!

According to MSN Messenger newsgroup (microsoft.public.msn.messenger), a new virus is found.

2003 is ending with another computer virus causing havoc on the net.

Anti-virus company Panda Software has warned net users to watch out for a new virus, a worm called Jitux.A, which is spread via MSN Messenger.

Jitux.A is an aggressive code that contains a link to the web page www.home.no/ / jituxramon.exe. Once open, the file JITUXRAMON.EXE automatically downloads, infecting your computer. The worm file stores itself in the computer’s memory and sends new infected

messages every five minutes to all contacts in your Messenger’s Contact List. Panda Software advises web users to update their anti-virus patch as soon as possible. Users can also download the free online anti-virus PandaActiveScan available at the company website.

Thanks for Linda‘s reminder.

  1. How can i avoid being infected by this virus?

  2. Thanks for the warning, Jian Shuo! Here’s another site that gives information about this worm and how to deal with it:

    http://sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.jitux.worm.html

  3. Never try to open any file, EVEN IF IT IS SENT BY YOUR CLOSE FRIEND – they may get infected without being aware.

    Aslo, hold not to accept invitation to add to your contact list for a while.

  4. Why are people saying do not add this dar0nb0y??? What virus will they catch? Why only this address & not others? And why is there absolutely no info on this supposed virus on reputable antivirus websites???

    Sounds like an attempt to scare people from adding others to their MSN contact list to me. Don’t believe this. Has to be a hoax I think.

    Follow the other advice in this message thread (do not open attachments sent from friends or family unless you are EXPECTING it or are 100% confident that it is not a file type that can carry a virus (such as .mp3 or .jpg))

  5. i couldn’t open msn messenger …..

    message comming like this “Sorry, we are unable to ……. plz try again later. 80072fod”.

    so if there is any solution plz…..

  6. through having msn 7 (BETA) i have a virus which has completly killed my computer, it is restarting my computer once reaching the startup page, even when trying to load in the last known configuration or in safe mode. How can i get rid of this, preferably without rebuilding and losing everything stored on my hard drive?

  7. To niraj

    The reason your recieving that message is because you are either using MSN messenger 7 (Beta) or have a Messenger that isn’t updated.

    If you have MSN Messenger 7 (Beta) or a lower make, uninstall MSN Mesenger and then install MSN MEssenger 6.2

    Once thats done, it will ask to be updated, say ‘yes’ and you won’t have anymore connection problems.

  8. i have had similar problems as the last person to post a problem (beth). but my internet has been affected and my computer will only open in safe mode. i have scanned my computer completely with kaspersky anti-virus personal (but its 204 days old because i cannot connect to the internt to update), also i have scanned with a malware scanner called a-squared. My computer still wont start nomally, my antivirus already found a worm with the name trimedia in it im wondering weither i could have moved to another part of my computer wile i was scanning. How can i get rid of this and other possible problems, preferably without rebuilding and losing everything stored on my hard drive?

  11. too late for me, do you know how to get rid of the bastard?

  12. MSN Messenger Virus

    Bropia.F worm, infects your computer by sending itself inside a message to all contacts.

  13. i have the skydevil virus,how do i remove it?

  14. PLZ someone help me!!! How do i get rid of the freakin SKYDEVIL virus?????????????????HELP ME!!!!!!!

  15. Mel, in most cases, viruses and worms come in multi-packs. You probably don’t only have one worm or virus but severals.

    1. Calm down and reboot your brain ;-) Fear and anger are bad advisors.

    2. Unplug the modem of the infected PC. Shut down the PC.

    3. Using another, not infected PC, download new anti-virus software including the *very latest* virus definition files. Burn it onto a CDROM.

    4. Boot the infected PC in “safe mode”, install the anti-virus software. Scan and clean your PC (make a backup of all data before doing this).

    5. If this doesn’t work, you usually need to reinstall all the software on your PC

    6. Take care that this doesn’t happen in the future anymore. Install a anti-virus scanner and guard (real-time monitoring). Update them every couple of days. And most importantly: Don’t click on a thing just because it says “click me”.

    7. Use safer software. For example, don’t use Microsoft software but Apple or Linux software.

    Good luck!

    please answer me!

    Need help!

  19. hi there, ive recently got a virus on my msn account. It sends a link to every one in my contacts list saying ‘LOSER’ then it says, ‘this is you in this cartoon’ then it sends a link to the contact with their email address in it. it does this roughly every 7 or 8 minutes. Im really stuck on what to do as it is a family computer, please help as soon as possible!!!

  20. I read your post about fixing viruses in safe mode by installing software. Pointless trying i tried to install somthing in safemode once.. in safemode the windows installer will not work belive me i tried (well in windows Xp Anyway)

    But i have a problem… i got somthing on my HDD that disables my welcome screen. when i try to enable it, it just says uninstall clients for NetWare.. and i have searched and searched for files within this topic… and nothing, i would reformat my drive (mainly coz i dont like the sound of “NetWare”) but there are too many files i need to keep and am currnetly unable to back up.

    Please help me get rid of this so i can get my welcome screen back

    Thanks,

    Dan

    PS. it may sound wierd that i want the welcome screen back, but after a while it just gets anoying.

  21. oh and By the way “virusinfected” your pc keeps reseting because u got somthing just like “MS BLAST” MS blast resets your pc after 30 seconds of turning it on and entering a browser… in your case u got the same only, it is dosent need you to open the browser.. may i suggest reformating your Hard Disk and keep protected

    Hope it helped (or helps in the future)

  40. just i want some options for messenger how can i onlion with my friends.please.

  41. Well, yes, the people who write viruses are sick.

    I’ve got a set of viruses which are, step by step, f*cking

    up all the files in c:\WINDOWS and programs

    such as Internet Explorer, Acrobat Reader, MS Office,

    Windows Media Player and others.

    Plus my pc has the habit to shut down completely

    without warning (one second it works, the other not

    even a little light burns anymore) and although this

    doesn’t happen too often, it’s very unpredictable when

    it does this.

    I’m able to stop most virsuses’ execution using

    the task manager (ctrl + alt + del), but some are

    IN the system files, which means I can’t shut

    them down like that. Corrupted source files…

    Well, to all virus programmers out there:

    you’re as sick as my “friend” Gorik, go get some help

    and buy me a new pc for you f*cked up my other, will

    you?

  42. I want 2 install msn beta …but im not sure if it is a virus or not.Is it a virus?

  51. get a mac they don’t have viruses and face it you’l all be dead by the time microsoft releases Windows Vista

  52. Hey,

    QH, You’re wrong!, I’m running vista right now!

    Vista RC1 (Release Candidate 1) that is, It works perfectly, I have not had any problems with viruses, the new windows firewall works a charm. You can only download Vista RC1 If you participated in Microsoft’s Vista Beta program. Lol also qh macs do have viruses, the computers at school are so f*cked up that you can’t even open firefox on half of them. Anyway, anyone need any help with viruses or stuff just eMail me at sycrat@bigpond.net.au. Most of the stuff you guys are talkin about isn’t so hard to get rid of, you just need to not give up, its always possible, you don’t even need antivirus software if you know what you are doing (although I do recommend a good firewall and virus/spyware protector. I’m really bored so I should be able to help you as soon as possible. By the way, I will not give any of you permission to add me on msn because you all seem to have Viruses and crap, as easy as it is to get rid of, it’s not fun and it’s a waste of time.

    Hopefully I should be able to help all of you,

    Kind Regards….

    Zycrat….

  53. I also had this virus. I got it from a friend who Said “Omg is this you (link to virus)” (which the virus made him say) I cleaned my computer as well as two other people who had it. All I did was a system restore. I know quite a lot about computer security, so if you need help feel free to email me at shadow_chiller@hotmail.com

    These are a list of things the virus did:

    Sent the same message (“omg is this you (link to virus)”) to all of my contacts.

    Shut down the task manager as well as the msconfig menu.

    Slowed down my computer.

    Slowed down my virus utitlitys by making them randomly unresponsive.

    Good luck to any of you who have it.

  56. Jack, I guess it is some kind of spamware, instead of virus. Recently, there are a lot of such software. Be sure never give your username and password to a third party website.
